Episode 4: Sugar, Spice and a Little Bit of Ice

"Grazie mille! A presto!" (English: Thank you so much! See you soon) said a delighted Margaret. She blew an air-kiss as she was coming out of the Executive Conference Room. "Yes!" she said as she jumped for joy. The news was truly exciting for her. Finally, she was going to places.

"Oh Judita! They told me that you would have to wait a little." said Margaret in a diva-kind tone.

"Why?" inquired Judita. She did not had a nice feeling about this.

"Lunch!" said Margaret while fixing her hair.

"God! I almost ran when they called." said Judita.

"You ran in these shoes. No wonder they are giving me your job, maybe they think you would be a better sport journalist." said Margaret in a teasing tone.

"What do you mean! You can't do my job." said Judita in a slightly panicked manner.

"Oh honey! They did. They gave yours and Ian's both. I am now responsible for International Events and Home Decor." said Margaret in a triumphant manner. "I guess they thought you were a bit drab."

"I am not DRAB!" said Judita feriously and marched in the Executive Conference Room.

The Executive Conference Room was spacious room. It had an oval-shaped glass tabletop standing on a mahogany stand in the center of the room. It had ten chairs on each side, it had a projector fixed on the front of the room.

"Time for...." said Isabelle. "Judita!"

Judita stopped. She was a bit embarrassed as the management panel was eating their lunches.

"Have a seat, Judita!" said Isabelle.

Judita sat. She did not dare to speak as there were people far important than Isabelle where sitting at the table.

"Claire! Please arrange the lunch in the Cafeteria." said Isabelle. "You know Judita, eating is important but how would you know. You are still a part-time model."

The tone Isabelle used was icy and subtle. It was not loud, yet it was venomous. "Be a good girl and don't march on us while we are eating in the Cafeteria. I know you are eager, and so are we."

Isabelle and along with her 4 people went outside for lunch.

VIVID Extra - The Modern Checklist to Buy Shoes

As shoes are getting multi-purpose day by day, there was a need to put a new guide to buy shoes. These days, there are ever so many kinds of them out there; however, the rules to buy shoes have not pretty much changed over the years until now. In order to buy shoes, you should always try to do the things according to the following checklist:
  1. Check your feet size regularly 
  2. Buy your shoes in the afternoon when your feet at the full size. 
  3. Make sure that they are comfortable on your heels and slip on easily. 
  4. Make sure they are aero-dynamic.
AERO-DYNAMIC! Well, you would ask why. I tell you why. You need aero-dynamic shoes to throw. Recent practices have shown that they are an effective way to get into the news and be a star, and who knows with all that throwing going on, there might be a sport hidden somewhere out there. After all, discs, hammers and javelins have been thrown too much. How about something new and totally radical, only shoes can do that. London 2012 Olympics could be a start for this new sport.

Now let’s review what shall be the four right types of the shoe for throwing.

As show-throwers would be called athletes and there is a plausible chance that they would be throwing their own shoes. They must be throwing a pair of athletic shoes. After all, what’s an athlete without a pair of athletic shoes? They are pretty light though and the endorsements would come flying.
My personal recommendation: Any brand would do but the best would be China-made. We should endorse our friend’s product after all.

Heels can be good for throw sport. First, most of them are made out of very light materials but due to their shape, the heels can put some resistance in the flight so the athlete needs to develop a skill and use the heel effectively. If they thrown correct, they can surely make a point. People who think that the heels are a women-thing, well they need to be informed that King Louis XIV was wearing them in his time, so there will be no problem for men to use them for a sport.
My personal recommendation: Any good old 6 or 8 inch ones. Pencil ones would be the best.

They are strong and sturdy. They look like a boomerang, so they should fly but again a skillful athlete would be required to make it fly the furthest. With all the budgets being spent by nations over military, a little expenditure for this peace-time practice might not hurt. Beware! Some of these boots do not like being tossing around and they might harm as these boots "are made for walking".
My personal recommendation: The ones that a General wears.

Instead of going to specifications and all; let’s use something fairly common, shoes with MUD. Be short, long or Army-sized, muddy shoes would be best as they could regularize the weight being thrown. The question stands what kind of mud. I reckon the mud from a flood would be plenty.
My personal recommendation: Flip flops with mud.

So the next time if a government needs to save their elite’s grace, they can say that the meeting was a shoe-throw practice and the person who threw the shoes was their upcoming talent. Surely, it will give that a better image and a concern for something other than their interest percentages as well as the government TV channel’s editor would breathe easy while editing. So, who wants to join practice?

Episode 3: Big Surprises, Little Ones Too

That day anyone who was asked to meet the Board of Directors had to wait in the Executive Suite. Once the Directors wanted to meet, they would call Claire the executive receptionist to let the person in. When Judita entered the Executive Suite, she was taken by a surprise, and like most surprises, this one was quite shocking.

Margaret Adrien was sitting there with one feet under the other and placed to a side of the chair. To everyone's eyes if Judita ever had competition, it was Margaret. Just like Judita, she was bodacious with all the right curves. She had glowing, flawless skin and shiny red hair. She was 28, but she did not look a day above 25. Margaret saw Judita as she entered the Executive Suite.

"Crikey! You look so nice," said a smiling Claire. "I guess that outfit is really in these days. Margaret is wearing one too, with same heels."

Judita could not just believe when she turned to look at Margaret. Somehow, by a stroke of nature's conspiracy or plain bad luck, Judita and Margaret were wearing the same Canary Yellow dress, and to top it all, both of them were wearing the same shoes.

"Margaret!" said Judita in a tone that she was excited to her.

"Judita!" replied Margaret who acted the same emotion of surprise. Her mind took a spin when she saw what just happened. She hid her confusion and like a lady, she air-kissed Judita's cheek. Judita air-kissed Margaret's cheek back. The emotional cover up was magnificent. Both of the girls acted like as if they were BFFs. Smiles and cheers were everywhere. Meanwhile, Claire exactly knew what was going on. She rolled her eyes and went back to her work.
